  • Hughes Honey Apiary Locations - Raw Honey
    Holly Springs, NC 27540. Phone: 919-342-5570. Mobile Phone: 919-656-2294. Email: Open: honey harvest process starts in late May to early June. The Spring crop is usually a combination of American Holly and Tulip Poplar nectars. Our August harvest is composed of wildflower nectars. We usually keep our supers off after our August harvest to allow our hives to have all the darker Fall nectar flows. Visit our honey house to see how the honey is extracted from the honeycomb. We hand uncap our honey super frames before extracting the honey. Straining and bottling is also performed by hand. Our honey bottling process gently warms the honey to the natural hive temperature (93-95 degrees) at which point every bottle is poured by hand. Hughes Honey is raw, unfiltered and is not heat processed. Our extraction process first begins by taking off the honey supers from the hive without using chemicals to drive out the bees. The frames are then uncapped with a knife and hand spun in an extractor. Honey flows out of the extractor into clean food grade five gallon buckets that contain a coarse strainer which traps the wax bits. The strainer allows small pollen particles and the beneficial enzymes to pass through which gives pure raw honey its unique taste and quality. The raw honey sits for a day to allow air bubbles to escape and is then hand bottled for consumer use. 2021 Honey Prices were Queenline 1lb jar $10
    We have a very limited supply of honey. Our next harvest will occur in late June to early July and expecting a mixture of Tulip Poplar, American Holly and some Ornamental nectars.
